Session Guidelines:
*Flow of the Plenary: Event emcees would be requesting the panelists to individually deliver their personal story of inspiration and life message for about 4 minutes. Speakers are invited in the order as mentioned in the program. The awards are presented at the close of the session.

Note for Special Plenaries/Chapter or Country Plenaries/conducted by Moderators: We request the moderators to keep the first round of opening in the same order as speakers as mentioned in the program, since bio/pic slides are queued up in that order. Also as bio/pics are flashed on the background slide for audience to view, speaker introductions can be kept to the minimum and the discussion flow can start at once.
Awards in the special plenaries will be announced and conducted by the event emcee.
Moderators are also requested to close the panel 5-8 minutes before the allocated finish time, as we would need this remaining for the final awards ceremony.
* Plenary Sessions: Plenary Sessions are for awardees only by invitation. Each plenary session has around 8 speakers and awardees who individually deliver their acceptance remarks and inspiring life message for about 4 minutes in the order of speaking as mentioned in the program. Awards are conferred at the close of the plenary.
* Special Plenaries/Delegation Plenaries: In case of Special Plenaries or Delegation Plenaries, the flow may be different depending on the moderator. However, opening of the session will follow the order of speaking as mentioned in the program.
* Parallel Sessions: Each session of one hour will have maximum of 4 co-lead speakers on a panel, who will speak for 10-12 minutes each.
* Roundtable Breaks/Activity Breaks/Networking Breaks in the Parallel Sessions are for maximum 15 minutes each. The flow of these is interactive.
* Moderators: For parallel sessions, it is recommended that speakers select from amongst themselves a moderator in advance who will strictly enforce the time allotted. All speakers in a session will be connected via email beforehand to coordinate their discussions.
* Vibe and Flow: We encourage speaking and sharing from the heart in storytelling format (instead of powerpoints). Overall, the vibe of the conference is interactive with open hearted sharing favouring connection and community spirit.
*Audience and Peer-Sharing: Since ours is a peer-sharing forum, many in the audience are also speakers in different sessions as inspiring entrepreneurs and leaders in respective fields. Ordinarily, there’s an audience of 200+ in the plenary, and 20+ in the plenaries, and many are outside in the halls networking.
*Timings: Timings of the sessions are subject to change. Sessions may be merged or de-merged depending on schedule flow. While we do our best to adjust and accommodate, the decision of the organisers is final.
*Language: The conference is in English. If any support is required with translation in your talk, do let us know in advance so we can connect you to another participant with a request for volunteer help.
* Live Stream, Videos and Pictures: The event is live streamed along with videos and pictures and all content belongs to the Women Economic Forum.
* Social Media: You can publicise your participation and request a social media banner template from our team.
*Press Release: A general press release is also available closer to the dates.
*Dress Code: We love to celebrate all cultures in creativity, diversity, and sisterhood. So we welcome you to dress up for comfort and confidence. Do also apprise yourself of local culture and customs.

* (*) accepted tentatively
